Disney has today confirmed its plans to build a new Star Wars-Inspired themed resort at Walt Disney World.

Part of a new Disney 360 vacation concept, this revolutionary new vacation experience will be a living adventure that allows guests to immerse themselves in an entirely new form of Disney storytelling.

“It’s unlike anything that exists today.” Bob said. “From the second you arrive, you will become a part of a Star Wars story! You’ll immediately become a citizen of the galaxy and experience all that entails, including dressing up in the proper attire. Once you leave Earth, you will discover a starship alive with characters, stories, and adventures that unfold all around you. It is 100% immersive, and the story will touch every single minute of your day, and it will culminate in a unique journey for every person who visits.”

Inside the walk-in fridge located within the kitchen of the Crown , right? I heard from a WDW Bus driver’s uncle’s nephew that there is a After Hours hard ticketed Event happening immediately after the last Cruise that includes a photo op and a snow cone. -

That is good to hear. Personally, I would rather it be the hard core Cruise fans that are there for the final day instead of the (sometimes) insufferable ‘local vloggers’. And yes, I am sure there will be several videos available after the happenings that cover the final Show. -

From following much of the GSC community on FB/Insta it does feel like lots of the mega fans will be there (which is good!) as opposed to vloggers. I am sure we'll see some videos from the final voyage however at least I hope so, I am sure it is going to emotional for crew and passengers.

We are coming up fast on the final cruise. Anyone we know going to be there to experience it? -

Well I've done both and the Starcruiser for similar money is a much more memorable experience. It's a year and a half later and my son still talks about it. And he can't even remember which resort we stayed at most recently at WDW. IMO what individual people think is worth their money is exactly the point. You were arguing what is more valuable to you at a price point. The prior poster argued what is more valuable to them. And trust me, this is not a knock on Sandals in Jamaica. That's another great experience.

6K for both including airfare, all food and drinks including alcohol seems like a good deal to me! I guarantee you yellow pad all the costs to get the same vacation in a WDW vacation, I bet its double with food and drinks.

LOL. I'm comparing the duration of time at the resort, plus what you get for it to what a stay at the Starcruiser costs. What one gets for a similar expenditure. ALL the food, all the drinks (alcoholic and otherwise) all day if you'd like. You can literally walk into restaurant after restaurant and continue eating if so inclined. Plus the water sports - including snorkeling excursions and scuba if one does them. My point isn't which trip appeals to which type of person.

Tbh that sounds a lot for that experience to me, further to travel, and maybe even boring (to me). I would have to be doing activities and experiences around the island to want to travel to another country to be at hotel with a pool, alcohol and a beach. So that would cost more money (for me). I don't think that kind of vacation is similar to Starcruiser. Starcruiser is the least relaxing thing ever, but was incredibly unique and I will really miss it. Day two I was getting 45 notifications about different missions and things going on. So not a place to go to "relax", it was extreme themed entertainment.

Isn't it just that guy that has no legal standing in the US but has been heavily commenting on the whole RCID thing? I have someone I know that just did the Starcruiser and loved it but they even said they see why it failed.

automatic monetization of videos is probably the single worst thing to happen to nerd gossip ever used to be you'd just burp out the paragraph of "somebody says somebody says that the project is on thin ice because blahblahblah" and now it's all ten minutes of nothing to say maybe something

He's not in contact with any legal experts. The "legal expert" in his videos is just doing political spin.

I was once the keeper of the insider rumors. So, I know full well that Pro's inside contacts are very limited. Very limited. And I've seen his insider knowledge be wrong. Or, presented breathlessly here as a scoop, when our regular insiders have already given us that same scoop earlier. He has presented information already widely available here and on the internet as his insider knowledge. But he uses what he gets to make himself out to be someone who knows so much more with his infamous sefl-report-card of 87% accuracy (which another forum member quickly debunked). And he's trying to monetize his "insider knowledge" with being an expert interviewed on other YouTube channels or writing articles for Disney fan sites. And when he gets dumped from them he starts his own channel with the cringyest thumbnails and makes it all about anti-Disney nerdrage for the clicks and the bucks. Don't be taken in. Even if he had some real, inside knowledge, it's wrapped up in a poison sandwich. We already have better insider sources here who have been kind enough to reveal what they can without monetizing it and without hateful ranting.
